      Our Mission

      The ADVANCE Program began in January 2002 as a five-year, NSF-funded project promoting institutional transformation with respect to women faculty in science and engineering fields. The program has since expanded to promote other kinds of diversity among faculty in all fields. The ADVANCE Program aims to improve the University of Michigan's campus environment in four general areas:

      • Recruitment - focuses on development and use of equitable recruiting practices
      • Retention - focuses on preemptive strategies to prevent the loss of valued faculty
      • Climate - focuses on improvement of departmental climate
      • Leadership - focuses on support for development of leadership skills and opportunities as well as on support for development of skills among all academic leaders to encourage supportive climates
